Buying new Class C

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2018 Class C motorhome from a SW Florida dealer.  It is built on a Ford E350 chassis.  The chassis was built in March 2017.  What’s the standard when determining the year of the motorhome?  Did I pay for a 2018 and actually get a 2017 model?

Gregor23,

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

It is quite common for the chassis to be a model year earlier than the coach.  The chassis has to be built and then shipped to the coach builder where it may sit for a few months before having a coach built on it.

The year (for registration, etc) is based on the COACH model year. 

Yes, for chassis items, use your chassis VIN/chassis year.

Welcome to the forum. Yes this is pretty common in the RV industry.

It is common in any industry which buys a chassis and then builds their custom vehicle on the chassis.  Not limited to RV's.
